Mahalo to my publisher, Five Star/Cengage, and to Ed and Deirdre at Encircle Graphic for a fabulous cover design!

A book cover has to grab your attention, and in a fraction of a second, tell you what kind of reading experience you’re in for. This cover clearly and colorfully signals a lighthearted murder mystery set in Hawaii. There’s a skull, which portends a murder, but the way it’s drawn, it’s not a super- scary skull. The foliage, fruit, and (of course) Spam musubis convey the lush abundance and the eclectic culture of the Hawaiian islands. The sushi grass poking out from under the musubis is a nice visual counterpoint to the palm fronds on top.

If I were browsing, I would definitely pick this one up! 

The Musubi Murder is available for preorder now from Amazon.
